Dr. Daicong Da joined Boise State University in 2023, and is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering. Before coming to Boise State, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar for the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Northwestern University in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He earned a Ph.D. from the Université Paris-Est, France.
Dr. Da’s lab research is committed to the progress of structural and materials engineering that contributes to energy conservation and overall quality of life. Through an interdisciplinary approach combining computational and experimental research, we explore the complex interplay between mechanics, materials, design, and data science. By investigating different physics and length scales, we enable multifunctional materials and structures with dramatically improved or entirely new properties, paving the way for innovative solutions. By using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, we aim to facilitate tangible real-world impact.
